SEELB Advice on Safe School Transport
Please remember that there may be occasions when it is not possible to operate the morning school transport journey, or the journey may operate late. You are responsible for your child/children’s safety until they are on the school bus or taxi.
Parents should ensure their children know what to do if transport provision is late or does not arrive and, if required, have suitable alternative arrangements in place to ensure the safe transportation of their children to and from school. During periods of severe weather school transport operators will only operate where it is safe to do so and your child/children may be required to use a different bus stop. If the morning school transport journey does not operate and you decide to take your own children to school, then you must also be prepared to collect them at the end of the school day of the school transport is still unavailable.
There may be circumstances when the school Principal decides it is necessary for children to be sent home from school early. It is essential that the school is able to contact you or a nominated responsible person at short notice. Please make sure that the school has up-to-date contact information.
There may be circumstances where transport is not available for the afternoon journey, in which case you will be contacted by the school. In such eventualities you will be required to make alternative transport provision for your child\children.
